Now we are back home. I might add that we drove around 35oo miles and did it with a packed car, seven people, and NO Dvd player!! And we survived!!

I should have posted this whole thing differently. I should have done it backwards so that it would post right. Oh well. After we got home, we had to get Daniel ready to off for a week to scout camp at Camp Geronimo. We got him off and he had a great time! He was home for a day or so and then we had to get him ready to leave on a road trip back east with his grandparents. Dennis has a brother who graduated from school in Pennsylvania so his parents were willing to take Daniel. They are seeing alot of church history sites as well and the Sacred Grove. THis is also a trip Dennis and I would love to take, hopefully with in the next few years, but were happy that Daniel will be able to have this testimony building experience! He's still not home and probably won't be until a few days after school has already started.

As for me and the other kids, it's just life as usual, getting ready to head back to school.

I got a new calling, activity days leader, and I'm excited to get going with that!

that looks like you guys had a blast. and you are brave to just drive around with all those kiddos!! how did they handle the hours in the car? we drove to va every summer, but my mom would not go past 8 hours. so sometimes we would stop at 2 and stay in a hotel!! it was so frustrating!! i'm glad you guys got to experience a fun family vacation though!!
